“Loved The Show (Family Hour)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

This was a great surprise and luckily we had reserved several days before because it sold out. The performers were hilarious and we had a wonderful time. They have two shows one at 8:00pm which is family oriented and another I think at 10:00pm for adults. This was really a great experience. Highly recommend it if you have an open evening. Do call ahead for reservations as the place is not quite small.
Travel well my friends!

“Hilarious!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

Improv Acadia was the only thing we planned for our vacation and it was well worth it! 4 players plus the pianist made for an enjoyable evening. My only complaint is that it was SHORT! Still worth it.

“Fun Show”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

We were in Bar Harbor during several very rainy days and nights. Looking for a little something different to do that didn't depend on the weather, we decided to give this a try. It is a small venue with limited food and drink offerings. There is a "family friendly" show at 8 and an adult show at 10:30, I believe. We attended the family friendly show. The actors were great and the skits fun. The audience will make or break the show. We had fun, but there was a large group of four families right near the front that basically dominated the "ad libs/audience suggestions" for the evening. If not for that, I think it would have been even more fun.

“Fun evening and talented actors”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

We attended an 8:00 p.m. show (the family-friendly one.) The actors are talented and fun. Guests can buy drinks and snacks. The shows can sell out, so call or email ahead, but if you decide to go on the spur of the moment, still give them a call. No one had to go on stage unless they wanted to at our show, but the audience does participate by calling out ideas for the acts.
